Home owners advice: Treating your wood with love

We have some sound advice on how to treat your wood finishes. Whether in your current property or in a new one which you are so excited about, remember that if you have wooden door frames, window frames or any other exterior wood surfaces, any of these surfaces would need regular and quality maintenance.
 
'It may seem costly or a labour of love, but if you regularly maintain the wood surfaces in your home, you will be rewarded with a noticeably maintained home, which inevitably increases the investment you have made in your property.  If left unattended for too long the appearance of the wood will be peeling and it will become discoloured and then the cost and effort to return it to its initial splendour will be considerable and need an unbelievable amount of elbow grease.  Why not protect all the wood features from the start and on a regular basis!' says Riaan van Deventer, Head of Real Estate at Engel & Völkers Southern Africa.
 
Dulux Woodgard is the ultimate solution to keeping wood in your home looking its absolute best. With its carefully selected blend of synthetic resin, oil, wax and preservative, Woodgard Timbapreservative protects all exterior wooden surfaces, while Woodgard Timbavarnish offers a glossy weather resistant finish.  It maintains and enhances wood beauty and also offers great UV protection, water resistance, as well as a durable glossy finish and can be trusted for quality interior and exterior timber care in your home.
 
Protect the Wood in Your Home Beautifully with Woodgard

Wood in the home brings a timeless quality to your décor that few other materials can emulate. And while we love the look and feel it creates, caring for and maintaining the wooden features of a house is vital to ensuring your greatest asset continues to looks its absolute best. Woodgard offers deep penetrating weatherproof wood treatment, as well as ultimate protection for both interior and exterior wood surfaces.
 
Enhance the Natural Beauty of Wood

“To give the wood in and around your home the very best care, we always recommend selecting a product that nourishes wood fibre, enhances the natural beauty of the wood while highlighting the grain and preserves wood against all weather patterns. From soft to hard woods, Woodgard offers these benefits along with the added advantage of UV protection, water resistance, as well as a durable glossy finish,” says Dulux Brand Manager for Woodgard, Carol-Anne Curtis.
 
Deep Penetrating Exterior Wood Treatment

For a penetrating wood dressing that protects all exterior wooden surfaces such as windows, doors and barge boards, choose Woodgard Timbapreservative. It is not a varnish and will not crack, flake or disintegrate in timber, but is rather a penetrating dressing that will not obliterate the wood.
 
It's important to note that Woodgard Timbapreservative is also a maintenance coating and should be applied every 6 to 12 months, or once the first coat has worn through. It has a low sheen appearance and comes in clear, as well as a range of popular natural wood finishes including mahogany, teak, light oak and dark oak. Teak or dark oak is recommended for light woods such as SA pine and mahogany, while light oak should be used for darker woods such as meranti. All five shades can also be intermixed in any proportion.
